This is an indispensable guide to ensuring that you make the best
possible hiring decision. The wrong decision can cost your company
thousands of dollars in training expenses, or worse. For example,
hiring an employee with a history of suing their employer may not
be a good idea, yet few know how to find this information.
By the time the candidate arrives at the interview, you should
have already conducted preliminary screenings of the resume, job
history and academic history and found the candidate to have the
minimum qualifications for the job. Now comes the hard part.
The interview is always the make-or-break test of a manager. You
must understand the dynamics of the job interview and the
multitude of ways job candidates will try to impress or deceive
Successful interviewing requires both knowledge and tact, and the
savvy managers know the right questions to ask and the hidden
meanings behind the answers. Often the important hiring
information is either illegal or inappropriate. Knowing whether a
female employee has small children at-home can affect their
attendance, lying on the resume or during the interview can
indicate moral turpitude. You must learn how to assess the
candidate in innocent and unobtrusive ways so that you can get the
data you need to choose the perfect person for the job.
